Intermittent Twin Region Nucleation Measurement Using Acoustic Emission
This study was conducted to measure intermittent twin region nucleation behavior in a polycrystalline pure Ti under uniaxial tensile loading. First, we prepare commercial polycrystalline pure Ti plate. Secondly, using Acoustic Emission (AE) techniques, we measure the macroscopic stress–strain curve and twin region nucleation behavior arising in polycrystalline pure Ti under tensile loading. To investigate the intermittent nucleation mechanism, we analyze spatial information of twin region nucleation using AE measurement results, which show the avalanche and inhomogeneous twin region nucleation behaviors under tensile loading. The inhomogeneous twin region nucleation is derived from its initial microstructure state. In the inhomogeneous nucleation process, the rapid growth of twin region size occurs, thereby producing avalanche nucleation behavior.
